I am hearing reports from various people about an alleged shooting near West Market Street on Thursday morning. This apparently happened right near the Police Station. One person tells me how they are feeling less and less safe in Long Beach, referring to the recent gun shootings from just nine days ago in North Park (see – Long Beach Herald: Two men shot near Channel Park Homes). “This needs to stop. It doesn’t make any sense to me. Only a few blocks from my home,” says another resident. There was also other shootings in Long Beach last September and in June.
